Re: Daily Vis Report Thread

Viz this afternoon around jamestown and newport was crappy up top but opened up to 6-12' on the bottom. Side note: keep and eye out in the bay for a 90cm freedivers euro gun with a reel that is loaded with yellow line and still has the shaft dragging along with it. I'll be your BFF if someone finds it

Dove Portland today. Vis was 6-8ft and 61 degrees. Saw one Tog 12"-14" but it was gone before I could get a shot, been seeing lots of Winter Flounder as well. Shot one Cunner.

Re: Daily Vis Report Thread

I had shot a decent bass and my first scup of the year before I lost her. Could be worse, I'm still alive and eating bass tonight! Seems lonely up there Will!

Re: Daily Vis Report Thread

Well did not limit out on Tog like I had hoped but I shot one decent 20" Tog to top off the season. Saw a lot of short tog and a lot of short bass. Actually the bass were everywhere but all were frustratingly short or to close to tell. Dove in Newport and it was nice, 10-15ft viz. At times it would go less but was pretty good overall.

10-15 south shore RI the past couple days. Lots of blues and small bass. Got into a huge school of herring in about 25' of water, but the only thing under them was a couple tog

61 Degrees in Portland already? I'll bet there are a ton of tourists sitting on their surfboards, catching those none existent waves.

Also, I usually pick oysters in warm (hot) summer water. I then toss them off a pier in a sack for a day or two to cool and flush. I've never had ill effect with these off season oysters, but what's your take on this health wise?

I have a couple spots I'll grab mussels in the summer, but they're out where they can get a good clean flush of ocean water twice a day. Same thing with clams. When the bay water gets over 70, especially after rain, I avoid bay mollusks. If we had a drought I would be less concerned, but for reasons we'll never understand municipalities can't seem to plan for rain in their waste handling.
What I really like in the summer is ocean scallops. I have a few spots where in one dive I will limit out. Those spots are cold, dark & deep but well worth it!

Re: Daily Vis Report Thread

went solo to sandwhich. cold water but ok viz, lots of junk in the water.
Only saw one 12" tog, and about 30 schoolie bass. Although, it could have been 6 schoolies that I saw 5 times! Really cool to see them underwater for once!
Saw one decent bass too, but no tog for dinner.

Re: Daily Vis Report Thread

Hit Nobska Light in Woods Hole this morning - nice solid 3ft viz. 20 knot winds.
Current ripping almost had head on collision with a bluefish going about 90mph at my face...only fish seen.

Re: Daily Vis Report Thread

Hit up Kings today, viz was spotty from none to 15ft in spots. Absolute ghost town for bass, not even a schoolie. Saw a few Tog here and there.
